Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, everyone! Spring is trying its very hardest to happen around here, and I’m looking forward to slightly higher temperatures this weekend and maybe even some open-toed shoes. Be the change you wish to see in the world, right? I’m also excited to have brunch with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile and catch up over mimosas and chilaquiles. What are you up to this weekend? Whatever’s on the agenda, I hope you have fun and enjoy this week’s roundup!

Friday Favorites!

1.  Everyone I know has such crazy busy schedules these days! The art of making time is something that can benefit us all. (From Roses)

2. Fake your way to built-in bookshelves (among other things) with these super chic IKEA hacks. (My Domaine)

3. Not sure where to shop for affordable art? These online resources are all budget-friendly. Personally, I’m a big fan of Society 6 and 20×200. (A Cup of Jo)

4. In honor of Women’s History Month, please enjoy these historic pictures of badass ladies during World War II. (Buzzfeed)

5. I’m not one to deny the power of a good serum, but these foods can be just as helpful in your quest for smooth, glowing skin. (The Everygirl)

Have a lovely weekend!

Color Crush: Coral

As far as all-time favorite colors go, coral is near the top of my list. It’s bright and punchy and perfectly embodies the cheeriness of spring and summer. It can look a little Palm Beach-y if paired with too many pastels, but it’s so versatile! I have to admit, coral pops up a lot more in my makeup bag than in my apartment, but I’m planning to change that. Ideally with an amazing coral front door (one day)…

Damn, how beautiful is that rug? If I had hardwood floors, I would be all over it! Here are a few other ways to integrate coral into your home.

Color Crush: Blush

Some may say that pink is more of a springtime color, but I firmly believe – and I’m confident Elle Woods would agree with me on this – that pink is always appropriate. Especially blush pink, which pairs so perfectly with a multitude of colors: gray, jewel tones, even warm, earthy shades. Adding a touch of pale pink simultaneously softens and brightens any space. Embrace the girliness!

Pink lockers - such a a cute storage idea!

Okay, so those lockers may be a little bolder than blush pink, but how adorable are they? Cutest office storage ever! Here are a few other ways to integrate this sweet shade into your home.

Color Crush: Emerald

Color Crush: Emerald // via South by Northwest

I have a thing for emerald green; it’s lush, moody, and vaguely regal (at least in my mind). Maybe it’s because emerald is my birthstone, but there’s something about this deep jewel tone that I simply adore. Plus, it pairs perfectly with coral, gold, and leopard, three of my other favorites. I’d love to splurge on an emerald velvet sofa one day, or maybe even take the plunge with this banana palm wallpaper made famous by the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel…

How cool is that Day of the Dead wallpaper? And what about that impossibly glamorous emerald and gold kitchen (which, btw, belongs to Cameron Diaz)? LOVE. If you’re a fan of the color but not willing to deal with the hassle of painting or wallpapering, here are some other, more subtle ways to incorporate emerald green into your home. I am seriously head-over-heels obsessed with #3 below…
